How I Can
Today's internet and social media culture is instantaneously informational... yet information by itself is not knowledge. My engaging, fun and challenging initiatives provide groups a catalyst for the formation of relationships that go deeper than simply accomplishing tasks together. The orientation to communication, collaboration and feedback inspires groups to connect what they have experienced and learned into transformational relationships, resulting in T.E.A.M: Together Everyone Achieves More.
Adventure based experiential education provides sequenced initiatives and challenges for groups and organizations. De-briefing follows each initiative.
All persons have leadership capabilities which will be explored and developed through diverse co-curricular activities and dialogue, emphasizing servant leadership that is based on these complimentary aspects:
Goals and outcomes of all Datz Us Adventure experiences are designed to develop within participating individuals and groups these servant leadership qualities:
tangible: external, material, and objective involving specific skill sets;
intangible: internal, spiritual, subjective and process-oriented.

Enabling others to achieve their potential through collaboration and teamwork
Improving the process of strategic problem solving through the practice of appropriate risk-taking, assessment and communication.

Developing personal self-confidence, trust and mutual support throughout a team
